Christmas Classic – Edward Scissorhands
Strand Arts Centre presents Tim Burton's seasonal classic Edward Scissorhands (1990).
Combining the gothic with the suburban and a fairytale-like romance with a satire on contemporary culture inspired by Frankenstein, Edward Scissorhands is a modern masterpiece and Tim Burton’s most essential film – a must-see on the Big Screen.
Johnny Depp stars as the tragic Edward, the creation of an inventor, who died before he could finish him – the final, now missing, piece to Edward was to be his hands. Taken home by Peg, an Avon lady who stumbles upon the mansion where he lives alone, Edward is introduced to society. At first lionized because of his difference, he then becomes villainized because of it.
